I got my SQ11 this morning as well. Lights came on  when switched on but reckoned this would be a low charge so plugged it in to my laptop to charge and it got very hot and now nothing appears to work. Don't know what I did wrong.  :confusedsign:

I seem to be having some difficulties with mine too :hmmm:
The micro SD card is not a click fit (as this video states) and it was only by following the vid I could tell which way up to put the card into the camera. Consequently I had already managed to nearly lose the SD card in the camera and had to use tweezers to extract it!



More fun tomorrow, no doubt :uneasy:

Happy birthday, Marco!



Just back from a week's break in Norfolk during which our grand old dog, Marco, celebrated his 16th birthday.

Those of you who read my earlier post on this thread (reply #3614, page 241) will know that we thought his number was up 3 months ago, so we are delighted that he has reached this milestone. Mind you, he gave us another scare at the beginning of the holiday and we had to take him to a local vet, but he bounced back. He never ceases to amaze us. He has come through numerous health scares, particularly during the last 12 months, but he's always recovered. He's had more lives than any cat and we are beginning to think he may be immortal...

Here's another holiday picture, this time with his great-grand-daughter, Lexie (on the left) and his great-great-grand-daughter, Bella (right).



We expect that will be his last holiday, so we are glad that he had a good one doing his favourite things - walking on the beach, visiting friends, and testing the local pubs and caffs.

Cheers,

Chris

For once I had a victory with the local council.... convinced them that a tree next to Chez Bealman was dangerous, and they came and took it.

Peace of mind. Been worried it about it crashing down on the house for years.

I had a similar thing in a previous home, George.

A shame when a tree has to come down but the job was done the extra light gained both outside and in was amazing.

Now they're stumped why they didn't do it before

Geez, maybe I shouldn't have posted this.

Although everyone is a comedian, getting council to do anything round here is like banging your head on the tree stump.

Big victory, serious.  :thumbsup:

Having drunk beer for nearly 60 years I have fond memories of draught Bass which these days is hard to find thanks to brewery mergers and "the Beer Orders!

imagine my delight when on a short visit to Harrogate I went into Hales Bar, a lovely old fashioned pub with cracking atmosphere 6 cask ales one of which was



in perfect nick! Well worth a visit if you're in the area.

Now you are barking up the wrong tree. Come to think of it, the tree isn't there anymore!

I've always thought draught Bass to be a good quaffing ale that seemed to travel well (i.e. it tasted the same in any pub wherever you were). Likewise Fullers London Pride and Greene King IPA :pint:

Bass - takes me back to the pre-CAMRA days and the 'price' of entry to a flat party at Uni was a Party Seven...  :uneasy:  :sick2:

The 'good quaffing ale' that's found everywhere (in my experience) nowadays is Sharps 'Doombar'...  :beers:

one of the first proper beers i had in a pub with me dad and his work mates,they'd get in the pub  after finishing there shift at 10pm and manage 4 or 5 pints before 11pm closing,i'd maybe manage 2 pints,but at 15  i shouldnt have even been in there.

Fullers London Pride
supposedly the've switched  the recipe back to the original,so hopefully its back to being a decent pint again

As for sharps and greedy king :poop:,nearly as bad as the ole party 7's,but at least watneys didnt hide there intent on world domination of the beer market
